    A couple of modified DCUs.

     

    Either a NSW piece, of possibly a Stryker Brigade piece. Any input is appreciated.



      An early ( '91 ) modified DCU.
     Notice take up tabs at the back of shirt,  the difference in cuff design, and 100% cotton content, as opposed to later 50-50 % cotton/nylon contents.

     

                    Early                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Later

    Thanks Alex,

    Very happy to have been able to grab these two tops.

    The upper one has seen very little use, and is very clean. The other one has been used, but not abused. I love the fact that it is an early piece...

    The hunt goes on...

    Top one looks like a SEAL modified I have. Lower I believe is USAF. I have/had several early dated ones with the same velcro that are all from a long serving USAF SSgt. Nice pick ups.

    Thanks for your comments Fins.

    Good to hear from you.

    I thought either SEALs, or SWCCs....Air Force sounds right for the 2nd one.

    Modified DCUs were not only used by the super elite...

    Thanks P,

    The CCU was an unexpected acquisition. Definitely happy to have had the opportunity to add it to the pile..

    This is my first DCU with a CAB ( Combat Action Badge ).

    This  is one of my nicest DCUs...

    The Artillery  Captain was attached to the 173rd Abn. Brigade when they made their combat jump into Iraq.
    A friend acquired 2 DCU shirts named to this Captain; one  shirt had jump wings with a combat jump star, this one never had any wings on it .  
    More than happy to have got  the wingless one, which shall remain so.

    This early USN DCU blouse came with a bunch of stuff I posted recently.

    There is ghosting of either PO1, or PO2 rank insignia at collar points.
